Be A Feminist wants to take a moment to note the passing of Adrienne Rich. She was an amazing poet, essayist and feminist thinker. She contributed so much to women’s movement and was extremely influential. She brought her politics into her poetry, including statements on women’s and lesbian’s oppression. She was brave, she was outspoken and she was an inspiration. The feminist and poetic communities that she helped to build will sorely miss her voice. As part of the new generation of feminists, we thank you for all of of your hard work. Many thanks and much love to Adrienne Rich.
